Pub operator JD Wetherspoon is launching its own reduced prices scheme after the end of the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out initiative.
Prices will be coming down at pubs like The Flying Standard, Spon Gate and City Arms despite the end of the scheme.
The move will see prices on a range of meals and drinks reduced from Monday to Wednesday until November 11.
And the boss of the pub group has boasted it will mean burgers are cheaper than at McDonald’s.
The cheaper prices will start on Tuesday, following the end of the Government’s drive to encourage people to eat out by subsidising meals during August.
Wetherspoon said prices on some of its meals and drinks will be cheaper than those available in takeaways.
Chairman Tim Martin said: “The Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme was extremely popular with our customers and a great boost to the hospitality industry.
“We are keen to offer our customers a superb choice of food and drink at great value for money prices.
“Our offer means that a classic beef burger in our pubs will be even better value than McDonald’s.”
